The manager believes that the 33 titles Los Blancos have won in the Spanish La Liga history speak for themselves.

In the last few years, Barcelona has enjoyed a good run in the world of football.

They have won three Spanish La Liga trophies in the last four years, and are set to get their fourth this 2018-2019 season.

But for Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, the 33 titles his club has in history are more valuable and speak for themselves on which team is the biggest in the country.

“La Liga is very important. It’s the daily objective,” he told reporters as quoted by Goal.

“It’s going to be our first objective for the next season.”

He explained: “We have 33 Liga titles. How many do Barcelona have? It’s true they are doing great in the last few years, and we have to recognize them, but in our history, there are many more titles. For me, it’s the most important title to fight for.”

Ajax star Matthijs de Ligt still unsure of his future

Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt conceded his future is still far from resolved despite the many big clubs that are set to compete for his signature.

“I would understand if any of my goalkeepers wanted to leave the club in case of not being my first goalkeeper for the next season.”

“Anything can happen yet. It’s easy for you to talk about their future, but the difficult part is for me to decide and to talk to them,” he added.

“If I would like to keep the three I have nowadays? I can’t say that, cause sometimes I like some things and finally, the opposite happens.”

“We have 25 players, so if we want to sign players, some others have to leave,” Zidane concluded.
